Temptation
3 October 2019 | by JordanThomasHallSee all my reviews

The corn crop is coming in and Sam is looking for a couple of farmhands to help harvest it. Andy suggests using ex-prisoners after his talk with the warden of the county prison about giving them another chance in life. Sam convinces a reluctant Aunt Bee to accept the men on the farm. Andy introduces Sam to reformed gambler Harry "Lucky" Davis (character actor Herbie Faye) and pickpocket Charley "Fingers" Wilson (Lewis Charles). After harvesting corn, Sam gives the men his truck and $20 to run errands. Among the tasks is filling the truck with gas, where Millie is filling in and shows them the help-yourself tin can to deposit the money. Emmett asks the men to run his fix-it shop while he's called away. The temptation is building for "Lucky" and "Fingers". Aunt Bee is entrusted the $500+ her women's club collected for a swimming pool and hides it in the cookie jar, leery of the men. They join everyone in church to hear Reverend Tucker's (William Keene) sermon on "the brotherhood of man". While the men's voices are way off-key, their singing of "Bringing in the Sheeves" is perfect in the heart. When they run off with the money and car, however, the worst is feared.

A very nice, feel-good episode.
